Marantz PM5005 Stereo Integrated Amplifier

The Marantz PM5005 is a two-channel integrated amplifier rated at 40 watts x 2-channels into 8-ohms and 55 watts x 2-channels into 4-ohms. This unit has a high-quality audio design such as a minimized signal path, use of high sound quality parts, and large power circuits; which is possible only in discrete audio components. The amplifiers themselves are custom-designed entirely with discrete components so you don't suffer any of the built-in limitations of off-the-shelf integrated circuits.

Product Highlights:

  • 40 watts x 2 channels into 8 ohms (40-20,000 Hz) at 0.01% THD
  • 55 watts x 2 channels into 4 ohms (40-20,000 Hz)
  • 4-ohm capability allows use with a wide range of speakers
  • Current feedback amplification and Marantz's Hyper Dynamic Amplifier Module circuits offer accuracy, control, and a wide soundstage under high- and low-drive conditions
  • Front-panel tone controls (treble and bass)
  • Source Direct mode bypasses tone control circuits for cleaner sound
  • Loudness mode improves high- and low-frequency response at low volume levels
  • 4 stereo RCA audio inputs, including a phono input (for use with a moving magnet cartridge)
  • 2 sets of stereo RCA recording input/output loops
  • 1/4" headphone output
  • Binding posts and front-panel A/B switching for two pairs of speakers
  • 3 rear-panel AC outlets for powering other components (2 switched, 1 unswitched)
  • Metal chassis and front panel minimize distortion-induced vibration for cleaner sound
  • Frequency response 10-50,000 Hz (+0dB, -1dB)
  • Signal-to-noise ratio: 102 dB (line in), 83 dB (phono)
  • Remote control in/out

Marantz PM5005 Stereo Integrated Amplifier


Featuring premium audiophile design at an affordable price, the Marantz PM5005 stereo integrated amplifier features all-analog circuitry from input to output, and delivers wide frequency response, high dynamic range along with true low impedance drive capability and is rated to handle both 8 ohms and 4 ohms speakers.

Featuring current feedback power amplifier circuitry (a Marantz innovation), the power amplifier section also features pure discrete analog circuitry along with multiple high current discrete power output devices that are easily able to handle lower impedance loads and deliver high instantaneous peak current capability.

Rated at 40 watts per channel into 8 ohms and 55 watts per channel into 4 ohms, the PM5005 features A and B speaker outputs, for two sets of stereo speakers, or for bi-wiring with compatible stereo speakers.

The deluxe remote control provides discrete source input buttons, and includes additional buttons for direct control of the matching Marantz CD5005 player and Marantz Network Audio Players.


Current Feedback Discrete Power Amplifier

The PM5005 features a power amplifier section based on our renowned current feedback technology, a Marantz innovation that debuted on our very first power amplifier. High current discrete power output devices mounted on a generously-sized aluminum heat sink together provide high instantaneous peak current capability, and are easily able to handle dynamic bursts into lower impedance 4 ohm speaker loads (the current capacity for each amplifier channel is a substantial 16 amps).


Wide Range of Connectivity Options

Veteran audiophiles and new generation music lovers both know that the sonic allure of vinyl records often can't be matched by digital audio sources, and the PM5005 includes multiple analog inputs including a MM (moving magnet) phono input.

There are also dual recording inputs and outputs, along with a headphone amplifier jack on the front panel, and the high grade speaker connectors can accept multiple speaker cable termination types.

The audio input and output jacks are all gold plated for maximum signal integrity.


Source Direct Function

To ensure the shortest signal path and the highest fidelity, the PM5005 features our Source Direct function, which bypasses the tone control and loudness control circuitry.


Fully Discrete Volume Amplifier Circuit

The volume amplifier circuit features fully discrete circuitry (no op amp chips in the signal path) for the widest bandwidth, lowest distortion, and highest dynamic range.


Elegant Remote Control

The elegant remote control includes additional function buttons that let you control a Marantz CD player and a Marantz Network Audio Player, for total system control with a single remote.


Versatile Remote Control Options

The PM5005 features remote control input and output jacks that let you hard wire the amplifier directly to a Marantz CD player, which in turn can be hard wired to a Marantz Network Audio Player.

For example, you can place a Marantz CD player on an open shelf for easy access, and place the PM5005 and a Marantz Network Audio Player tucked away in a cabinet and hidden from view, and control all 3 units with a single remote, which helps to eliminate component clutter.
